You can tell if a Mexican restaurant is " authentic" by their rice. It should have peas, corn, sometime carrots and small slices of onion, This does. And it was delicious ... and that is only the rice. I ordered the "make your own lunch" for only $6.95. I got a chicken fajita and a beef enchilada. Normally, the 'beef'... More

I've been going to Mi Paquena Haciendas for years now. Great service. The good is always fresh and cooked perfectly. It's also a great place for friends to get together for birthdays!

I went with friends who suggested this place. I won't be returning. The food was ok. The chips were hot and the salsa was good. The margaritas were weak. The main problem was our waiter. He didn't understand English. We had a definite language barrier! I ordered a margarita and then wanted to change the flavor. When he brought it... More

I was not overly thrilled with this place. When we sat down they did bring out the hot chips with salsa. Honestly that was probably the highlight of the lunch. I ordered chicken tacos with beans and queso dip. The tacos were barely filled. Taco bell has more filling in there tacos. The queso dip was good. My boyfriend order... More

Food was good, price was good. Just moved the area and plan on visiting again. Unique setup, but some consistent visuals amongst the Mexican decor. I can't wait to go back and try a Margarita.

The pork empanadas were excellent, service was good, drinks refilled regularly, chips and salsa replaced as well. Portion sizes were ample, and prices were reasonable. Would definitely recommend.

We have eaten at Mi Pequena Hacienda many times over the last 13 years. We have never been disappointed. Lots of food options -- with recipes from many locales south of the US border. The salsa could be a little spicier, but this is Kentucky. People who like things "hot" are accustomed to carrying their own bottle of hot sauce.... More

We have been going here for several years and the food is consistently good. It is real Mexican and not Tex-Mex. Service is always good - very polite servers. Love this place.
